I've driven by China House on Grant Street in Novato any number of times without seeing it. This time I noticed and that's where Dad and I enjoyed dinner after enjoying a movie (Race to Witch Mountain). Although their artificial flower beds needed some weeding (they were bent over and dusty), it was small, cute and the service was friendly.
We had Shrimp Chow Fun, which was excellent! The noodles had a slight smokey taste and the shrimp were fresh and tasty.
We also had Scallops with Vegetables in a light garlic sauce, with some white rice. The scallops were tender and flavorful, the vegetables sauteed just right, and the garlic sauce was light and not overpowering. It was a high quality dish. I would definitely revisit this neighborhood Chinese place!
